About Great Jones:

Great Jones brings ease and performance to rental ownership and living, starting by reinventing property management for the several trillion (!) dollars in rental homes owned by small-scale investors. 

We’re replacing an experience that has historically been heavily operational, low-tech, and stressful with one delivered through modern software, thoughtful experience design, real benefits of scale, and the right blend of local & centralized operations.

By providing a seamless, full-service experience for owners and residents, we aim to make ownership worry-free and more profitable for the 25 million Americans who own rental homes. In doing so, we become the operating system around our owners’ most valuable investments, as well as our residents’ homes.

And we’re doing this within an enormous addressable market, with highly attractive unit economics, where competition is deeply fragmented and notorious for subpar service.  

We are growing rapidly with nationwide expansion on deck -- headquartered in Manhattan with on-the-ground operations in 20 markets across 9 states.

Our leadership team has built digital platforms and operational machines that have powered hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of transactions for marketplace businesses like 1stdibs, Skillshare, and Warby Parker.

We’ve raised over $30 million (including our recently closed Series B) from top investors including Crosslink Capital, Navitas Capital, Zigg Capital, Juxtapose, and top NYC angels & real estate entrepreneurs including Kevin Ryan, David Rosenblatt, and Jason Finger, who have founded or led companies such as Seamless, Gilt Groupe, MongoDB, DoubleClick, 1stdibs, Floored, and others.

An Insider's view of Great Jones

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's definitely a startup environment in that people dress casual, there is an open floor plan, and a buzzing energy. At the same time you can feel that people on the team take their work pretty seriously (but not themselves too seriously). There are a number of team traditions without it feeling like a cliche startup.

Max

VP, Sales

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Collaboration is as simple as turning to the person next to you or sending a quick slack message (creative GIFS are highly encouraged) asking for help or input. Where we shine as an organization is in our ability to bring together people with really deep and varied experiences.

Laura

Growth Operations Lead

How does the company support your career growth?

For self-starters, this is the place to be. You'll find each challenge ladders up to an outcome with real impact on the business. If you're thinking about the story that you want to tell when you outgrow your next role, Great Jones will give you the opportunity to write your own narrative and gain access to the resources you need to get there.

Kahala

Growth Marketing Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our unusually cross-functional team brings deep insights both from past experience and day-to-day work. By making the customer experience our North Star and letting the best idea prevail, regardless of where it's from, we'll reinvent how people interact with this massive asset class.

Jay

Founder, CEO

What does career growth look like on your team?

Great Jones is built to be a true meritocracy. The best ideas win, and can come from anyone, at any level. Team members who show great instincts and build a track record of strong decision-making get more responsibility. Rinse and repeat! There is no ceiling. And the whole team is supportive of promoting from within.

Abigail

Co-Founder, Head of Growth
